Diagnostic testing for your pet

When your beloved dog is diagnosed with cancer, it can be a scary time. You want clear-cut answers but often more information is needed to help guide difficult decisions. SearchLight DNA® is a diagnostic test that provides critical information about your dog’s cancer to help confirm his or her diagnosis and determine the best path forward with treatment.

When diagnostic testing is right for your pet’s cancer

As pet owners ourselves, we at Vidium understand the temptation to rush into anything with the potential to help your pet. But we also believe that treatment decisions are best made in collaboration with your trusted veterinarian or veterinary oncologist.

SearchLight DNA can help you and your veterinarian navigate your dog’s cancer journey by:

  1. Uncovering important information about your pet’s tumor. Using the most up-to-date scientific data, the SearchLight DNA test provides as much information as possible about your dog’s diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment options.
  2. Personalizing management and treatment to your dog’s needs. Identifying the mutations in the tumor allows you and your veterinary team to select the treatment that targets those mutations and rule out others that may not be beneficial.
  3. Delivering clarity and confidence. By helping you and your veterinarian make informed decisions, SearchLight DNA allows you to navigate the cancer journey with confidence.
  4. Allowing treatment to possibly begin sooner. Earlier treatment may improve your dog’s outcomes and may make it possible to spend more time with them.
  5. Helping give you peace of mind. Knowing that you and your veterinary team are providing the best care possible for your dog may give you and your family some peace of mind.

How does SearchLight DNA

First, your veterinarian will send a sample of your dog’s tumor to our laboratory, where scientists isolate and study the tumor’s DNA to identify the specific mutations. A report is provided within 9-12 days that provides information about your dog’s cancer diagnosis and treatment options, based on the mutations that were identified. Using this information, you and your veterinary team will discuss the diagnosis, review treatment options, and determine the best course of action so care can be provided to your dog as quickly as possible.

Please consult your veterinarian if you are considering diagnostic testing for your dog’s cancer. We would be happy to provide you or your veterinarian with more information to help guide your discussion.
